Everyday Melody - Poem by Squizzle Jellyfish

In the day's first rays of light,
An alarm clock sounds
With obnoxious rhythm.
Shattering silence.

A bird chirps.
Its soprano song
Parts the crisp, morning air.
Joyful singing.

A breeze picks up,
Whistling peacefully
Through the treetops.
Skittering leaves.

By afternoon,
The cicadas wake &
Incessant buzzing
Echoes from every tree branch.

As twilight falls,
The crickets & the tree frogs
Sing their eerily-similar melodies,
Illuminating the night with sound.

A solemn owl hoots,
A raccoon chatters irritably,
And deer dance cautiously through
Starlit fields.
Tendrils of overgrown grass
Quiver in their wake.

In another world-
Perhaps on another planet-
A girl sits in a bedroom,
Door locked & music at
Full volume.
Pounding drums & shredding guitars
Fill her ears
& her heart.

Music is her life,
Her everyday melody.
